NICEVILLE — An elderly man who was sitting in a wheelchair in the rain told police he was just “enjoying the weather.”

A passerby called police on Feb. 11 to report they saw the handicapped man sitting in the rain by himself on Partin Drive. The caller was concerned about the man and wanted someone to check on him.

A responding officer located the man and made contact with him about four minutes later. According to call history records, the man told the officer he was fine, he lives close by and was just on his way to the gas station to pick up some items when he decided to stop and enjoy the rainy weather.

The officer then went on his way and the call was closed.
